Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find your class schedule?
Do I need to sign up in advance of a class or do you accept walk-ins?
What should I bring and wear to an Empowered class?
Bring a positive attitude! Hydration is key so don’t forget to bring a water bottle. Touch-less water coolers are available to refill your water bottle. If you do forget to bring a bottle, we do sell bottled water in our studio. We recommend brining your own towel to use during class. However, should you forget, we do have towels available to borrow at no additional cost.
Regardless of whether you’re taking a strength or cycling class, we recommend wearing moisture-wicking, comfortable clothes to keep cool and dry throughout.
We provide free weights and equipment. However, we do encourage you to bring your own Bender ball and bands. For all strength classes, please bring an exercise mat. We also sell equipment that you can purchase when you arrive at the studio.
If you’re new to indoor cycling, you may experience some discomfort with the seat. Bringing a gel seat or wearing padded bike shorts will help. Stiff-soled sneakers may be worn during class. However, for greater benefit, we recommend wearing cycling shoes. Our state of art Stages™ bikes accommodate SPD pedals. We also sell amazingly comfortable women’s TIEM Athletic cycling shoes in our studio and via our online store.
Do you have showers?
Yes, we do have two showers for use post-class and they are available on a first come, first served bases. Please bring your own towel and toiletries.
What is your inclement weather policy?
We will try our best not to cancel classes or close the studio. However, for the safety of our riders and staff, we recognize that we may need to close due to inclement weather. Starting the night before, please check the website schedule, for a most up-to-date schedule.

What is Empowered's cancellation policy?
Our cancellation policy is as follows:
- For those ENROLLED in class: 8-hour notice of cancellation is required for all in-studio, instructor-led classes to avoid a forfeit of class (or $15 charge for those on an Unlimited or All-Access plan).
- For those on a class WAIT-LIST: Be prepared to be entered into class up to 30 minutes prior to class start. If you need a longer window of notification, please remove yourself from the wait-list once that point has been reached so another participant can get into class.
- Once a WAIT-LISTED person becomes ENROLLED: the 8 hour cancellation rules apply. No exceptions.
